Asked by Jul 14, 2016 at 05:39 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier Type 10 Convertible FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1985 Cavalier Type 10 2.8L FI. Battery went dead. Tried to jump it, turned
over barely then died. Bought new battery. No response from starter, no
clicking, no turnover. Bought and installed new Ignition Switch, same thing.
H/Light, Interior lights work. No Radio, No turn Signals, No Heater Fan, No
Power Seats, or Windows work, No Fuel Pump noise. I'm sure power is not
getting to the Ignition Switch. What am I missing?

I think the power is not getting from the Battery to the Ignition Switch. What
is in between that could cause this?

Check for loose wire connections on the starter solenoid.
